Come on Timaru, is this for real?


Eels are actually quite an interesting part of our culture.  Lots of people have their eeling story.  But nothing like this.

Police are investigating after eels were used in a bizarre attack on a Timaru property.

Sergeant Greg Sutherland, of Timaru, said police were called to a Collins St house about 11.20pm on Sunday and found several of the slimy creatures lying on the lawn.

Officers reviewed footage of the incident, which was caught on closed-circuit television, and spotted two vehicles pulling up outside the house – a red Holden Commodore with a grey bumper and a light-coloured ute.

Four people had got out of the two vehicles, pulled out a chilly bin, and started throwing the eels, Sutherland said.

It was unclear if the eels were alive or dead at the time of the incident or what the motive for their use was, he said.

Anyone who had information about the incident was advised to contact Timaru police on 03 687 9808.

Seeing as you first have to catch eels, it doesn’t reflect a crime of passion as much as something that required some planning and effort.

What does it mean, when you have eels thrown against your house?

    I can solve this.
    Were there 16, 32 or 48 eels by any chance ?
    The Cowboys beat the Eels 32-16 last night.
